The costs involved in the annual spray programs to control powdery and downy mildew can drastically be reduced by establishment of disease resistant vineyards The need for environmental preservation contribute to the necessity for breeding and evaluating disease resistant winegrape varieties suited for Australian conditions
The 1 st generation of mildew resistant winegrape varieties, are being evaluated for field performance and winemaking potential. The breeding of 2nd generation of mildew resistant varieties with additional resistance loci for more durable resistance is now underway
